Oh, Sunday, why do you have to show up every week to remind me that tomorrow I have to go back to work? Can’t I just stay home tomorrow and play the new Assassin’s Creed while pedaling my elliptical? I suppose not.
Oh well, it was a fairly good week, and a rather interesting weekend as far as progress. So, let’s just jump into the update!
Monday’s trip to the dentist ended up going very well. The rest of my mouth was planed and now it’s a matter of upkeep and one filling that will be done in two weeks. But given how sore my mouth was after the numbness finally wore off (almost 6 hours until it was completely gone!) I had a soft dinner, which meant I wasn’t counting carbs or calories. I just wanted to eat anything.
Anything turned out to be one snack pack of sugar-free jello and an entire container of Greek Gods Strawberry and Honey Yogurt. Holy cow that stuff is so good. Due to not being able to feel my mouth and not wanting to risk ending up wearing my lunch, I didn’t eat any, so by dinner, I had no self-control.
Still, I hit a new milestone this week by dropping down into the 270’s which means that I have hit more than 70lbs lost!
Oh god did we overdo it yesterday. And you know, we didn’t really eat a whole lot more than we normally do on cheat day. I just think that we’re about to hit another of those “It’s so good, but I just can’t have it anymore” moments.
I think the biggest mistake was eating dinner and dessert way too close to bedtime. We both ended up with horrible indigestion all night. I always take a Zantac before bed. Last night I took a second one at about 3 am, and I still had issues!
We both woke up this morning with sugar hangovers. It’s a real thing! I suppose that it’s actually a good thing. We’ve been cutting sugar out so much that when we do eat it, we have a bad reaction to it. Given that I used to eat an entire bag of gummy Lifesavers without issue, and yesterday I couldn’t eat more than 10, I’ll take the trade-off.
